December 20, 2010. Discovery Point has been ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises List for 2011. Discovery Point makes their debut on the list at #290, a respectable entrance onto a list that also features more widely recognized franchises like McDonalds, Subway and Hampton Hotels.
Entrepreneur Magazine has generated its list of the Top 500 franchises for over 30 years. To begin generating the list, Entrepreneur asks franchisors to participate in a survey that helps scale the list of eligible companies down to 760. Based on financial and statistical data over the past two years, the list of top 500 companies is finalized.
The criteria to qualify for the list is what separates the extraordinary from the ordinary: financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size of the system are evaluated. These criteria apply to all the companies that are considered, no matter their size. Other factors are used to determine the list, such as the years of operation, how long they have been franchising, and whether the company provides financing.
Founder and president, Cliff Clark was immensely pleased to have Discovery Point enter the list, saying that “this recognition shows that Discovery Point is more than a child development center you see on your way home from work. We are a solid franchising company who is recognized as one of the best in the nation.”
